Careful, People!: Gary Schonert was involved in a $20,000 Scam past 5 days. Fortunately, his banker questioned the transfer and saved Gary the $20,000.

Unfortunately, Gary had to change all his computer and banking passwords, as well as notify Social Security regarding direct deposit. Bottom Line: it can happen to anyone.

  • Chris Gorman rehabbing Ankle Surgery - sees Dr. this week hopefully good news.

  • Dr. Parisa rehabbing and dealing with Kidney Stones.

  • Gary Albright had successful prostate cancer surgery.

  • Dick Peterson dealing with a disabled wire in his pacemaker.

  • Tim Letsch has a lower leg/knee issue after pickleball.

  • Pete Schiro needs Shoulder Surgery.

  • Rick Jones is in therapy for his shoulder issue.

  • Others need prayers: Todd Pettit, Bob Garrity, Mike Iggulden, Jim Poulsen,
